Hello every body
I have narrow Vertical Rectangular channel, heated from both side. the flow direction is downward flow, normal flow velocity (1 m/s) at the inlet B.C and average static pressure at the outlet, the total length of the flow channel is 0.3 m so the static pressure at the outlet will be ( rho*g*h=2935 Pa). The first problem is regarding to the pressure and pressure drop, whereas the total pressure at the outlet is lower than the total pressure at the inlet, but in reality at the flow velocity (1 m/s) the total pressure at the outlet should be the higher than the inlet due to the static pressure term (gravity effect). I make the flow in downward direction but I couldn't find how to specify the gravity direction except by actuating the buoyancy option On, but even if I used this option, the result not changing.

Don't forget that CFX uses pressure with the hydrostatic component removed when gravity is defined. See the documentation for more details on this. Look at Absolute Pressure if you want to see pressure with the hydrostatic component included.

Gravity is coupled to buoyancy. Why would you want to turn gravity on but not have buoyancy?

Thank you soo much
But how can I define the flow direction (Upward flow or downward flow) without the gravity. and how can I see the absolute pressure. In the CFX-post, I can found Pressure and Total Pressure as a variable

The flow direction is set by your boundary conditions and your simulation set up obviously. The whole point of CFD is that the solver tells you which direction the flow goes.

Look under the puzzlingly labelled "..." button to see the additional available variables.

Thaaaank you so much
I'm always looking in those additional variables but in fact it's my first time to find the absolute pressure. So could you please tell me what is the difference between the (Pressure, Total Pressure, and Absolut Pressure) in the CFX.
And regarding to the other question which I asked about the wall boiling model I already posted that
